Back in 2009, few months after winning her TFI New Labels Fashion Design Competition title, Fashion Designer Faren Tami graciously accepted to spend some time with me (+ a Cameraman) in her Toronto based home studio, where she answered few questions about the TFI New Labels title, her brand and future projects.
And although Fashion is all about looking forward, I went backward this time, revisiting my archives for candid moments, especially because this video almost never happened, an intricate story of Will, Persistence, Patience and Dedication.
We spent a good hour together that day; she showed me pieces from her Fall/Winter 2009 collection and I even got to try on a few. I was especially fond of a winter coat (grey with black accents – seen on picture), still relevant for Fall/Winter 2010, despite being labelled FW/2009!
Many things have happened since my chat with Faren, she has now launched her SS/10 Collection, accessible on her website http://www.faren.ca/ and the TFI New Labels has now crowned a new queen, as Montreal based Designer Anastasia Lomonova.
But let’s not spoil the moment, as you are about to watch the video below, which I hope you will enjoy just as much as we did.

A special Thank you to Marc-Andre Miron and Nana Sam for devoting their time and patience – I am not always easy to work with – in the filming and editing department.
